CfGS Annual Scrutiny Conference 2021 – Scrutiny in Challenging Times

December 1, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


CfGS is pleased to invite you to join us and fellow scrutiny members, officers and others passionate about good governance at our Annual Scrutiny Conference on Wednesday 1st December 2021.

Following a year off due to COVID, we are going ahead with a much needed in-person event returning to the fantastic King’s Fund venue near Oxford Street, London. The day will provide you with a unique opportunity to meet-up, network, share learning and ideas and hear from thought-provoking speakers.


Conference focus

As we hopefully enter into a period of pandemic recovery, it is important to reflect on the lessons learnt and get ready for the next set of challenges – ensuring our scrutiny and governance is fit for purpose

As always, we will open with an inspiring and informative set of speakers giving their unique insights on scrutiny in challenging times. The programme will be updated regularly as the speakers are confirmed.

The rest of the day will be interactive and fun as we come together to crack the ‘scrutiny in challenging times’ puzzle. In workshops, we will ask you to help our Cluedo councillors investigate and solve different scrutiny challenges, all of which will come together into a new guide which we will share with you and publish nationally. 

By attending you will have the opportunity to network and learn from scrutiny colleagues from across the country, learn from expert speakers and facilitators, find out what you can do to improve the impact of scrutiny in your councils, or feel assured that you are on the right track.

It is guaranteed to be an energising day and a valuable investment of your time. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. 

The draft programme can be viewed by clicking here, and will be updated regularly as the speakers are confirmed.

You can book your place here.
